E-Maps project

Save your map project in ExcelE-Maps Project button

The most wanted feature in Excel E-Maps is available now in E-Map Pro. Save your map layers, points, heatmap, thematics in a Project file.

Excel E-Maps Project

The project file (a file with ’emp’ file-extension) stores information on your Excel spreadsheet, the tab you geocoded, and from release 2.0.5 it even stores drawn objects. 
When you open your project file, E-Maps will generate the map layers by automatic geocoding, create thematic shading, plot the labels and will generate the drawn objects in the drawing layer.  Using the Project saves you time and reproduces the same maps as you had before. 

See how the Project works on youtube.

Adjustable colours and ranges in heatmap

New heatmap settings

Always wanted to change the colour scheme of the heatmap? Or do you need different colors to emphasize the importance of locations or negative values?

Heatmaps are widely used to analyse and visualise density and intensity of data. E-Maps supports both heatmaps based on density and heatmaps based on a value of the data. Adjust the colours, the ranges and display negative values.

E-Maps has baisc heatmap functionality in all versions. E-Maps Pro has the additional value based heatmaps. Discover the new specifications for heatmaps in Excel E-Maps.


What is MapPoint? MapPoint E-Maps

Since 2000 organizations used Microsoft MapPoint for quick geographic insights. The tool had background maps for large parts of the world and for many countries you could geocode. The software and the maps had to be installed on a (network) harddrive.

People used MapPoint for quick geographic visualisations and analyses of their own MS Acces or Excel data. In selected countries routing was an option as well. By the end of 2014, Microsoft stopped developing MapPoint.

Excel E-Maps the successor of MapPoint

What comes after MapPoint is the easy to use, Excel mapping plug-in E-Maps. E-Maps provides worldwide advanced geocoding, based on address, postal code or city names. The Excel add-in is the best tool for GEO analysis with features like heatmap, choroplets and other thematic mapping. E-Maps uses the up-to-date map and geocoding engine from Here ™.
Isochrones and routing capabilities are available in E-Maps Mobility.

Adjustable heatmaps

Heatmaps with search radius

Creating heatmaps is one of the most used features in E-Maps.
Most of the heatmaps are based on default parameters, like search radius and colour ranges.

In Excel E-Maps users can adjust the search radius for heatmaps.
Points can be displayed on top of the heatmap and the option for gradient heatmaps didn’t change too.
